"Poets will come back to the predicament of the unsayable—call it the ecstatic, or the sublime. They will wander, or saunter, in search of the other side of things and their names, where 'pillars recede with their ribbons.' Tightly wound into an elastic precision, Joshua McKinney's poems are intent on finding the interstices where revelation might subvert observation, observation might lead to revelation. To follow this pursuit is a pleasure: 'Near an end / the sum shook / free of its figures.'"
